La Vieille Bourse in Lille is arguably the mostprestigious building in the city. Built around a courtyard, the seemingly unified building is actually a nestling of 24 identical houses built at the expense of 24 merchants, which originally gave shelter for people for trade and finance. It was classified a historic monument in 1921.
Its implementation was entrusted to architect Julien Destrée in 1652 to 1653.
The inner courtyard of the Vieille Bourse is open every afternoon from Tuesday to Sunday. It hosts a market for used books, and chess players.
